Carriage clocks

Carriage clocks – small, portable, spring-driven clocks with carrying handles – are among the most popular clocks with collectors today. This type of travelling clock was developed by Abraham-Louis Breguet (1747-1823), one of the most famous French watchmakers of his time. At the turn of the 19th century, these watches were called pendules de voyage. In the early 19th and 20th main producer was France, but they were most sold in England and the United States. (ala)

at a hammer price between 1.000.000,01 Euro and 2.000.000,00 Euro the buyer´s premium is 23,80 % (including VAT) for the (partial) amount of 1.000.000,00 Euro and 17,85% (including VAT) for the (partial) amount between 1.000.000,01 Euro and 2.000.000,00 Euro
